Aaron Rodgers is on pace for a legendary season in 2011. He is the first quarterback in NFL history to record a QB rating above 110 in each of his first seven starts. His 20 touchdown passes put him on a record-breaking pace as well, and his completion percentage of 71.5% would be an all-time best. Rodgers is also the NFL's all-time career leader in passer rating during both the regular season (101.9), and in the post-season (112.6) – among passers with at least 1,500 and 150 pass attempts respectively. He also owns the league's lowest career pass interception percentage for quarterbacks during the regular season (1.89%).

It has come to our attention that Aaron Rodgers runs a record label. While we have been told his tastes skew elsewhere, we can be reached at band@dallasorbiter.com. Oh, and here are two new songs for our single-of-the-month project. Mark & Dan really loved Love & Rockets growing up, etc.

Both songs mastered by Neil Weir at Old Blackberry Way (We love that The Move song)

ABOUT THIS THING

For our tenth(!) anniversary as a band we decided to do something a little different this year. We will be posting a two-song single for free download every month in 2011. The "A-sides" will be our songs and the "B-sides" will be covers. At the top of the page you'll find the most recent release, and along the right side you'll be able to grab releases from past months. Below will be semi-frequent updates from the dudes. Touch us at band@dallasorbiter.com.

June single somewhat slightly delayed/Turf Club show

Some technical difficulties set us back so we won’t be able to post the June single until sometime early in July.  We know you were all breathlessly waiting by your computers, so sorry for the delay.  July’s single is already completed, however, so we’ll be right back on track.   If you’d like a preview, come check us out at the Turf Club on Thursday, July 7th.

Request us on the Current!

MPR has added some of our new tunes to their awesome web interface. You can request songs like This Array (from our February release) as well as rate and find other tunes by us.

Show this Saturday, May 14th.

Holed up in our custom built cave

Studio #1 began to take shape during the winter of 2003 in a small south Minneapolis basement. The goal was to make it sound proof enough to stay on good terms with the neighbors. As for considerations for roommates, none were made.  The band sustained only minor injuries from mis-swung hammers and lumber-to-the-head encounters.

Studio #2 is tucked into a quiet NE neighborhood. Again, the aim was to be good neighbors but this time we had loftier goals. We were to convert a cold cement bunker of a 3-car garage into a studio/workshop/storage area. We also needed to keep my family in mind. My wife loves us but glasses vibrating to the floor from the bass was no longer acceptable.  We upped the ante with bigger power tools but the band again escaped serious injury (and an automatic name-sponsorship deal for the new room–we intended to name the studio after the medical term for the first emergency room-worthy mishap).  Things seem to have worked out again.
